About Orthodontics

  /    /  About Orthodontics

At Specialists In Orthodontics, our goal is to provide you with a healthy, functional bite and a beautiful smile.

Orthodontics can improve the quality of life across all ages. Having a confident smile can be a booster for self-esteem in children and teenagers. For adults, the improvement in appearance after orthodontic treatment can greatly impact their social and professional lives. Our team is ready to help you get that beautiful smile!

Besides improving your appearance, orthodontics also aims to achieve a healthy and functional bite, which will allow proper routine oral hygiene maintenance, achieve a comfortable bite, prevent dental injuries of protruding front teeth and stop uneven tooth-wear. Without orthodontic treatment, an individual may be more susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease, jaw growth issues, excessive tooth wear, and dental trauma.

An orthodontist is a dentist who has become a registered specialist in orthodontics (in much the same way that a cardiologist is a doctor who has become a specialist in heart problems).

In Australia, an orthodontist must have the qualifications of an AHPRA-registered general dental degree, a Doctor of Clinical Dentistry in Orthodontics or Masters degrees in Orthodontics, and be registered as a Specialist in Orthodontics by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

Only a specialist orthodontist can be a member of professional specialist orthodontic organization, such as the Australian Society of Orthodontists.

At Specialists in Orthodontics, our registered specialists have over 32 years of combined orthodontic, dental and smile experience. We are members of the Australian Society of Orthodontists, American Association of Orthodontics, European Orthodontic Society, and the World Federation of Orthodontists.
